DTVA has always been notorious for under-paying compared to other airports over the years. The phrase "you pay peanuts you get monkeys" is often heard around the place.

It's doesn't sound a lot: put it another way, it's not even double the minimum wage.

Is this driven by the current situation of high graduate unemployment?

Only advantage for graduates: no requirement to pay back their university fees at such a low salary.

Interesting he doesn't say Coventry. The guy could possibly be in Jet Blast in the biggest t1t discussion.

Looking at the artist impression in Beefer's link, that Tesco's in Washington is going to need some more parking - there's an idea, Park and Ride!

Plans approved for caravan park at Durham Tees Valley airport (From The Northern Echo)

Possibly a new kind of fly drive holiday ?

Would be nice if comments could be restricted to those of an aviation nature.

If I wanted to read the Daily Mail, I'd go and buy it.

The decision to allow the change goes against the councilís own planning policy, which states that all economic activity within the airportís grounds should be connected to the operation of the airport.
Planning officer David Coates told members that if the application had been for a permanent change he would have advised them to reject it, but that a three-year temporary change was acceptable while the airport worked to increase passenger numbers.
Just noticed this para - was the planning permission for the south side restricted to aviation related activity. Useful precedent...

Was the 3 years picked by DTV or by local Govt planning officers ?
If DTV is still running almost entirely on just Aberdeen + Amsterdam in 2016, will DTV still be a Peel owned passenger airport ?

Peel will decided when the RGF bid is granted or not.
Anyone know how much a caravan pitch in the car park is and do you have to pay council tax?

The store is raised on pillars creating the remainder of the carpark underneath. This is quite common to reduce the footprint.

Insurance cover.

A friend had his caravan stolen from a site in North Yorkshire and they told him that stored vans weren't covered by insurance.

Knowing DTV security (what security), it might get interesting when the owners turn up to go on holiday.

The insurer will always ask if the storage site has a number of key features, including a defined boundary and on-site security. If it hasn't, then they will decline to cover the caravan. The location of thefts is recorded and exchanged between insurers, so high-risk and non-compliant sites are known.

The first 6

Looks like they have been laying a new taxi way as well



Do they charge extra for propane tanks and pick up trucks?
